It seems like we can’t stop talking about Oakland producer and Anticon co-founder Jel around these parts. From playing our Noise Pop Happy Hour in February to remixing and heading on tour with Sleigh Bells, the guy’s been making newsworthy moves for months. Now you can add a new 67 minute free mix titled “Jel Mix Mice Elf” to the list. Covering 30 different tracks by Jel and other notable Anticon label mates (Sole, Doseone, Themselves, 13 & God, etc), the mix moves deftly from beat-heavy tracks to the signature Anticon experimental hip hop sounds.
If you’re traveling this summer, you can catch Jel on tour with Sleigh Bells around the rest of the country or bring your dancing shoes to his headlining show in San Francisco on August 8th at Milk Bar. We’re also looking forward to the new Serengeti LP C.A.R., which drops July 31st on Anticon and was co-produced by Jel and Odd Nosdam.
